  • AVI Record Number: 3585
  • CAVI Collection: Florence 70,994.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF hydria. From Pescia Romana. Unattributed{1}. Mid-sixth (CVA).
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: Heracles and the Lion. Body: warrior and charioteer in a chariot.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Body: above the horses' backs, at a distance from the humans: Ορ[ρ]ι̣π[π]ος{2}. Below this inscription, but starting further to left (not stoich. and not correlated with it as a two-liner): Ανχιπ[π]ος. Under the horses' bellies: Πεγαδας, retr.{3}. To horses' right, not facing them: Κ̣αλ[λ]ικ̣ομ̣ε, retr.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} i.e., not in Beazley. CVA attributes to the Zürich Painter (see ABV 92). {2} a break passes through between the rho and iota. {3} so CVA, text. The photo does not show a clear gamma; the letter is near a break and could be a tau. But Kretschmer also reads Πηγαδας. {4} the dotted letters are incomplete but certain.
  • CAVI Comments: = inv. 1853. Anchippos is found also on Louvre F 53, Group E, signed Exekias as potter, ABV 260/30. Two human and two horse names. Orrippos should be the charioteer. Kretschmer derives Πηγαδας from πηγος `compact, strong' and compares Pegasos (which is not derived from πηγη).
